MASTER CLASS DE JOÃO PEDRO RODRIGUES & JOÃO RUI GUERRA DA MATA
hosted by Jean-Sébastien Chauvin
João Pedro Rodrigues first studied biology with the intention of becoming an ornithologist and then went to film school in Lisbon. His work, partly with João Rui Guerra da Mata, his companion and artistic director, is dedicated to the exploration of human desire, sharpened by the very topical questions of identity, gender and species, right down to metamorphosis. Their films, to which we are devoting an extensive retrospective, have been selected and awarded at the most important international festivals, including Cannes, Venice, Locarno and Berlin.
